Pictures of various waterfalls from Argentina and the United States like Iguazu Falls and Ramsey Cascades and information about them. Browse the images below.
Iguazu Falls can be accessed from the Parque Nacional Iguazu, Argentina. The 1.7 mile edge of Iquazu Falls is made up of between 150 and 300 individuals cataracts depending on the amount of water flowing over the falls. They range in height from 197 feet to 267 feet.
Ramsey Cascades is the tallest waterfall in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park falling over 100 feet. The hike there is strenuous at over four miles and rising over 2,000 feet in elevation.
The pool at the base of Abrams Falls on Abrams Creek Makes a wonderful destination for a swim. The trailhead for the 2.5 mile hike to the falls, which is rated moderate to difficult, is located at the west end of the Cades Cove Loop road. At 20 feet in height,Abrams Falls is not tall, but the large volume of water makes it impressive. It also makes swimming near the base of the falls very dangerous. A number of people got too close and drowned.
Flight of the Martin BW
This is just part of the Iguazu Falls from the Argentina Side of the river. If you look real closely you can see some of the martins that nest right in the falls as protection from the toucans and other birds that predate their eggs and chicks.
